how come the driver didn't see the guy falling from the wing mirror and/or notice the cold wind coming from the open door? or did the guy close the door after he fell out???

Posted in: Tokyo police form first ever stalker investigative squad See in context

In cases where an individual contacts police to report a stalker-related crime

So they will wait until it's a crime?? I've read a lot of stalker-related stories about girls receiving hundreds of mails from their stalkers, and police tells them "sorry, we can't do anything about it, sending mails is not a crime etc...", and eventually these girls get assaulted. good initiative though.

Posted in: Biden assures Abe that U.S. doesn't recognize China air zone See in context

I can't help but imagine this scene: Abe (desperate... in tears, overwhelmed): "Please, Biden-san, I'm begging you... tell me that you're here for me... that I'm not alone... don't leave me alone...." Biden (patting him on the shoulder with a slight smile on his face): don't worry my dear, I am here for you. I don't recognize China's ADIZ

Posted in: Chiba policeman arrested for stalking ex-girlfriend See in context

@Pandabelle: according to wikipedia : "In 2000, Japan enacted a national law to combat this behaviour, after the murder of Shiori Ino.[41] Acts of stalking can be viewed as "interfering [with] the tranquility of others' lives" and are prohibited under petty offence laws." didn't know that. I've been hearing a lot about women murdered by their stalkers lately (ex-bf, husband etc..) after police told them they couldn't do anything about the stalkers.

Posted in: 307 cases of food mislabeling found among 23 industry groups See in context

307 (for now) is not a small number anymore! Do they realize that this mislabeling thing is doing a lot of harm to many customers??? Punishing them would be the best "countermeasure. and how are "housewives" supposed to distinguish between fake ingredients and real ones? Experts are needed here.

There are no traffic lights at the intersection.

In my experience, J drivers never have the courtesy to stop for whomsoever at such places.

@Farmboy: the only thing I'm assuming is that at 99,9% of foreign visitors speak English better than Japanese.

unless mass protests happen across the country, Abe and co. won't listen to the people, and nothing is going to change. Nice pic though

Posted in: Japan's whaling ships leave for Antarctic hunt See in context


oldman_13: If the whalers were operating in Japanese territorial waters I might agree, but they are travelling half way around the world to waters that do not belong to Japan to kill whales that do not belong to Japan.

I say they have no right to do this and their actions can in no way be described as "Japanese culture" (unless you consider depletion of fish stocks Japanese culture). Pig-headed arrogance is what I call it and I hope that Sea Shepherd stop them and cause them to make a loss (again).

Posted in: Japanese cuisine added to world heritage list See in context

@Spender: Sorry but I don't eat junk food. I come from a Mediterranean country where everything has a taste. Vegetables taste better, fish tastes better and spices taste better! I find Japanese food really overrated.

Posted in: Japanese cuisine added to world heritage list See in context

To me (at least), what they call "Japanese cuisine" is totally tasteless. It might look good, but it has no flavor.
